Is the MSM still hiding Trayvon's real age and size as a way of pandering to racist sentiments? Here is a partial survey of the MSM Trayvon Martin articles with Trayvon pics today.
A first very sweet image of Trayvon Martin the MSM constantly displayed when the story first broke:
You probably remember when the media went on a race-baiting rampage with these early images of a dangerously frightening George Zimmerman and the young hooded Trayvon Martin:
But here are a few images of an older, tougher Trayvon you might not have seen very often:
Imagine if the MSM had used these pics (below) as first images? Would there have been such an outcry and racial tension?
After public outrage for over a month, most of the MSM began using a current pic of George Zimmerman, the "White Latino," but that innocent hooded pic of Trayvon remains as the most used image of Trayvon even today. See these pics below in today's New York Daily News:
Today the New York Daily News explores the fact that Trayvon had injuries to his knuckles before he was "gunned-down." The article continues:
“It goes along with Zimmerman’s story that he acted in self-defense because he was getting beaten up by Trayvon Martin,” Sheaffer said.
ABC News chose not to display Trayvon pics today as they ran with the story of George Zimmerman's injuries:
A medical report compiled by the family physician of Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman and obtained exclusively by ABC News found that Zimmerman was diagnosed with a "closed fracture" of his nose, a pair of black eyes, two lacerations to the back of his head and a minor back injury the day after he fatally shot Martin during an alleged altercation
What may come as a big surprise is the Fox News Slide Show is still using the now familiar younger=innocent Trayvon pic. Actually, the slide show has two younger Trayvon pics but not a later pic of the older stronger Trayvon. Why? Is Fox News pandering too? Say it isn't so!
Huffington Post's Bob Cesca explains the leftist "reasoning" for Media Double-Standards . . .
Sure Bob, a century or more of Double-Standards is sure to hasten racial healing!
"Yes, there's a double-standard. And until there's full equality and the long slow process of racial healing is completed, the double-standard has to remain.
Meanwhile, down at MSNBC.com, we can read that . . .
Brian Beckmann, who posted the comment April 11, must also complete a Fit for Duty evaluation and diversity and/or sensitivity training, the letter from Fire Chief William Bryson said. Beckmann may appeal the decision within 14 days."
Here's the comment:
Besides having disparaging words for the prosecutor, the post also said: "I and my coworkers could rewrite the book on whether our urban youths are victims of racist profiling or products of their failed, (expletive), ignorant, pathetic, welfare dependent excuses for parents, but like Mrs. Corey, we speak only the truth. They're just misunderstood little church going angels and the ghetto hoodie look doesn't have anything to do with why people wonder if they're about to get jacked by a thug,” he posted.
Yes folks, more diversity training and continued media double-standards should do the trick!
